In brief: Need to confirm...

Fever after stone removal / stenting requires timely attention; so, go to urgent care for assessment and rx now.
Don't guess online. Best wish...

In brief: Possible urinary infection

Ureteral stents in and of themselves do not cause fever's.
Your stone may have been treated with eswl or by cystoscopy, ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy. Prophylactic antibiotics are often used at the time of the procedure and at the discretion of the urologist are continued. You are presently on ciprofloxacin. If you have an infection is it resistant to the cipro? Call md in A.M.

In brief: Possible infection

If there is no other obvious cause for fever, i would be concerned about an urinary tract infection related to the indwelling stent.
Discuss the fever with your urologist.

In brief: Infection

You have some type of infection.
Given you have a ureteral stent, you might have a kidney infection. Please see your doctor.
